Quotes

Haydée: I found a definition for Haydée. She's a collector! Haydée, if you sleep around without premeditation you are the lowest of the low. The atrocious ingenue. But, if you collect in a consistent way, with obstinacy, it's a plot, things are entirely different.
Daniel: Yes, but she collects badly.
Haydée: I'm not a collector.
Adrien: Don't say that. It's your only quality.
Haydée: You're completely wrong. I'm searching. I'm searching to find something.

Razor-sharp and light-footed analysis of emotional vanity
28 November 1998 | by joep-4See all my reviews

Art dealer, in need of serenity, finds that the holiday villa is shared by a hedonistic young woman. He becomes obsessed with ignoring her and pretends to himself that she wants to seduce him while he remains unaffected. The holiday thus turns into a love triangle between the indifferent but flirtatious girl, the man's unacknowledged desire, and his incessant, pompous self-rationalizations (the best cinematic use of voice-over EVER!). A sunny, witty, and deeply ironic "moral tale" that explores, like most of Rohmer's work, the uneasy vacillation between intellect and eroticism.
